Eating Local in Newfoundland with Munchies

I’ve wanted to go to Newfoundland for years now and this video seals the deal.

Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a kind of person that Munchies like to get to do their hosting?  Obviously they know their demographic best, I just find that obese, very tattooed, vulgar guys with a heart of gold hosting cooking shows has a limited shelf life for me.  Am I just showing my age?  Matty has a kind of vulgar charisma in this segment, I just think there is something to be said about understatement and charm.

In theater school I was always told by my teachers that I was too charming so maybe I’m just too uptight and out of touch, I just find it interesting that the trend these days is certainly this kind of personality and well, it just leaves me scratching my head.

And here I am posting about it so….


About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
